FILL FLASH

With the ambient exposure locked in, the fun begins by adding flash to the subject. The advantage of using high- speed strobes outdoors is for fill flash. I like to brighten shadows on the subject where ambient light doesn’t fall. The general rule for the light placement is about 4 to 6 feet away, angled slightly down, and use the bottom of the main light’s modifier around the shoulder or eye level.
